"They really built them to last in the fifties" their builder said, so it was a no-brainer for the current owners to give this great and a little bit quirky' lady a sympathetic makeover sparing no expense. Built in the prized precinct of upper Thorburn Street, this lovely 50's/60's timber home with its unmistakably original Deco angular verandah posts is built on a huge 800m2 site. Cleverly planned it is a home with a seemingly typical 50's small footprint from its curbside view. A single storey front with single level living including very wide covered verandah areas on 2 sides, its front is where the illusion of being small ends. This surprisingly spacious home has a high enough elevation to cater for a full-height second (lower) storey. A former laundry area (enclosed and still fully serviced) it adjoins the lock-up garage and opens out to an almost flat backyard.
It's in the backyard that lovers of self-sufficiency will be delighted! There's a fabulous series of concrete bordered vegetable garden plots, a well-built high dividing fence between the gardens/fruit trees and the big chicken run (plus a great metal coop) with an established grapevine dividing the two. Beyond this you overlook the manicured agriculture plots and lawns of the local K-12 school and beyond that is a lovely view of the dramatic Nimbin Rocks. There's even a fully paved back of house area perfect for a fire-pit where you could soak up the amber winter sun hitting the rocks. Just wow! Sustainable living, town convenience, quiet ambiance this one screams "contentment!".
The interior of this home is simply lovely. With a neutral colour palette, high ceilings and original but beautifully restored solid Brushbox floors throughout you can add your design flair to either accentuate the 50's features or convert to a totally contemporary residence. The outstanding feature of this offering is the huge open plan living area plan with a kitchen of American Walnut, frosted glass and Osprey' Caeserstone. High end appliances such as Miele dishwasher, Bosch Oven/gas cooktop/rangehood, Flexispray mixer tap and a massive plumbed 2-door Samsung fridge (included) will delight the serious chef, and rather than be incongruous to the 50's home, its design integrity is assured with a unifying 50's inspired glass tile splashback.
Presented beautifully by an exceptional tenant (who would be happy to stay on for investors), this quaint all-hardwood home is full of little touches that set it aside from its opposition. Apart from the possibilities of extending the under-house area into a self-contained guest quarters, teenage retreat or rented space, council currently allows you to build a second dwelling in the huge backyard.... so investors take note.
